      Gorgias just announced the availability of a new book which may interest
      listers:

      Textual Variation: Theological and Social Tendencies?
      Papers from the Fifth Birmingham Colloquium on the Textual Criticism of
      the New Testament
      Edited by H. A. G. Houghton and D. C. Parker
      Text and Studies, Third Series 5
      Gorgias Press, 2008
      List Price: $105.00

      Description:
      Did scribes change the text of the New Testament? This book questions
      the assumption that they did and the claim that variant readings are due
      to theological motivation or social difference. Evidence is gathered
      from some of the earliest surviving biblical manuscripts in order to
      reconstruct the copying habits of scribes and to explore the contexts in
      which they worked. Alongside these are studies of selected early
      Christian authors and writings, which illustrate attitudes to and
      examples of textual change. The papers were first presented at a
      colloquium in Birmingham and further developed in the light of
      subsequent discussion and interaction between the presenters. The
      international team of contributors represents a wide range of approaches
      and theories and includes many leaders in the field.
